Isis air strikes: Obama's plan condemned by Syria, Russia and Iran

The Syrian government and its close allies in Moscow and Tehran warned Barack Obama that an offensive against Islamic State (Isis) within Syria would violate international law yesterday, hours after the US president announced that he was authorising an open-ended campaign of air strikes against militants on both sides of the border with Iraq.

Syrian opposition groups welcomed Obama's announcement and called for heavy weapons to fight the "terror" of Isis and Bashar al-Assad. Saudi Arabia and nine other Arab states pledged to back the US plan "as appropriate".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And note how quickly Assad has been lumped in with ISIS as the intended target!

Why is Israel Missing from ISIS Fight?

Israel gets $3 billion a year in military aid from the US. Over the last 60 years, the Jewish state has received about $250 billion worth of airplanes and armaments.

Yet when Obama appeals for a "a broad international coalition" to fight ISIS, which supposedly threatens the whole Middle East, Israel is not asked to join. Canada, Germany, Australia, France, Turkey ..all are asked..but not Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel helped create ISIS!

Syria's Reaction To US-Airstrikes Against ISIS+ISIL Terrorists

Sep 11 12:05

Barack, We Hardly Knew Ye

But here’s the giant flaw in Obama’s incendiary strategy. The Peshmerga can be counted upon to ferociously defend Kurdistan against ISIS encroachment, and the Shiite militias will doubtless accomplish the same in their own territories. But no one with a modicum of historical knowledge would think it sane to send them up into the Sunni lands of the Euphrates valley to mop-up after the American bombs, missiles and drones.

In short, once Washington is in full bombs away mode there will be no Free Syrian Army or reconstituted Iraqi army to finish the job. And the idea of meaningful boots on the ground from a regional coalition amongst the enmity ridden nation’s of Turkey, Iran, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE is too preposterous to even merit discussion.

President's ISIS speech fails to mention plan to protect homeland

U.S. President and Commander in Chief Barack Obama on Wednesday night held a prime-time televised address to the American people, which was admittedly designed to explain to the people that the President actually has a strategy for taking on the threat posed by the Islamic State (ISIS). That strategy entails air strikes and promises of coalition ground forces increasing in Iraq, as well as the possibility of the U.S. extending bombing missions to include Islamic State forces in Syria. But critics say he neglected to mention steps taken to prevent ISIS and other Muslim terrorist organizations from entering the United States.

Once Again Obama Shows That He Is Clueless About What Is Going On In The Middle East

Why would Barack Obama want to give hundreds of millions of dollars of weapons to groups inside Syria that are selling weapons to ISIS and regularly fighting alongside them? Is he really that clueless about what is going on in the Middle East?

OBAMA AUTHORIZES STRIKES IN SYRIA, MORE TROOPS HEADED TO IRAQ

President Barack Obama outlined a new, expanded strategy to "degrade and ultimately destroy" the extremist group calling itself the Islamic State (also know as ISIS or ISIL) with a primetime speech Wednesday night. Speaking from the state floor of the White House, Obama vowed to "eradicate" the group.

"So tonight, with a new Iraqi government in place, and following consultations with allies abroad and Congress at home, I can announce that America will lead a broad coalition to roll back this terrorist threat," Obama said, according to a prepared version of his remarks. "Our objective is clear: we will degrade, and ultimately destroy, ISIL through a comprehensive and sustained counter-terrorism strategy."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama started out his speech making all the right statements about stopping ISIS, then stopped short of declaring open war.

This may be his realizing that more wars will work against incumbents in November with Democrats taking the brunt of the public outrage. Obama may be thinking of ramping up the war for real after the election.

But those who wanted the wars to start now are enraged and much of the corporate media is lambasting Obama for not going far enough. Some commenters are going as far as to try to re-write Obama's speech after the fact, reporting what they wanted him to say or trying to pout their own interpretations on it. Obama's "solution" to the crisis is to repeat the mistakes of Yemen and Somalia, maintain air strikes, and rely on others to send in the boots on the ground. None of this will work, and Yemen and Somalia are hardly successes to be emulated.

Still, I am relieved that for at least one more day we are not catapulted into a global conflagration which the US ultimately will lose.

Right now my main worry is that those who wanted the wars to crank up for real today will, in their frustration, find some means to provoke the situation, even without Obama's consent.

New Iraqi Government Will Abide by U.S. Regional Goals

You see the disastrous U.S. policy in Iraq and their attempts to defeat the Assad government and the Syrian army were actually kind of shooting themselves in the knee, because it was based on false assumption and, incredibly, overestimation of oppositional forces and the underestimation of the interests of Russia and Iran and so on, especially in Syria. So now what they're trying to do: they're trying to utilize the conflict in Iraq with the Islamic State to expand and extend the war against, again, the government of al-Assad and the Syrian army, utilizing now the Islamic State.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Obama’s Islamic State strategy relies on allies with own reputations for brutality

Whatever strategy President Barack Obama lays out Wednesday to combat the Islamic State is sure to rely heavily on buy-in from rival Muslim powerhouses Saudi Arabia and Iran – one a Sunni Muslim kingdom with its own grim penchant for beheadings and the other a Shiite pariah state that’s executed thousands of dissidents.

Though hardly ideal, these partners are vital to any serious effort to weaken the Islamic State, according to foreign policy analysts who are tracking the U.S. response. Depending on hardline Islamist theocracies to help in the fight against an even more militant, self-proclaimed caliphate is among the many uncomfortable scenarios Obama must accept if he’s serious about wading deeper into Middle Eastern wars.

Instead, the assembled ministers took steps to accelerate two new conflicts, one on its borders and the other in the distant Middle East.

BEX ALERT - Seized ISIS laptop reportedly yields plans to make ricin, car bombs

Another set of files found on a laptop in an Islamic State hideout in Syria blah blah blah blah yadda yadda blah blah blah!!!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh my, yet another "Laptop of Death" (Reg. trademark The White House). The first Laptop of Death back in 2007 supposedly proved Iran was building a nuclear weapon, but experts concluded the documents on it were hoaxes created by someone with no real knowledge of nuclear technology and that laptop was ultimately traced back to Israel, not Iran.

But government follows the old adage that if at first you don't succeed, lie, lie again!

So here we have "Laptop of Death: The Sequel!"

Now, setting aside the past history of these laptops being hoaxes, stop and think for a moment. If you had documents that were that important and incriminating, would you leave them on a laptop or put them on a flash drive on your personal keychain, just so that you could not lose them?

Would you not keep such documents encrypted to prevent prying eyes in a situation where you know your operation has likely been infiltrated by foreign spies? Over at my website, we issued no less than 6 code challenges to the NSA over the last year, none of which were broken, proving that anyone with a little programming experience can invent new methods of encryption that the NSA cannot break. Do you really believe that anyone really planning terror leaves their plans in clear text on a laptop just waiting to be found? Because if you believe THAT one, I have some of Saddam's nuclear weapons to sell you!

The Covert Origins of ISIS

Now after Gaddafi was overthrown, the Libyan armories were looted, and massive quantities of weapons were sent by the Libyan rebels to Syria. The weapons, which included anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles were smuggled into Syria through Turkey, a NATO ally. The times of London reported on the arrival of the shipment on September 14th, 2012. (Secondary confirmation in this NYT article) This was just three days after Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed by the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi. Chris Stevens had served as the U.S. government's liaison to the Libyan rebels since April of 2011.

Obama ready to strike at Islamic State militants in Syria, he tells policy experts

President Obama is prepared to use U.S. military airstrikes in Syria as part of an expanded campaign to defeat the Islamic State and does not believe he needs formal congressional approval to take that action, according to people who have spoken with the president in recent days.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The goal is war with Syria. That was the goal last year with the lie about Assad gassing his own Alawite supporters with Sarin gas right in front of the UN chemical weapons inspectors last year and it remains the goal today with the US-created ISIS and the staged beheading videos.

Under the Constitution, Obama does not have the authority to arbitrarily bomb Syria, especially since Assad does not want him there.

Obama does not have ther authority to bomb Syria under international law. U.N. Charter, Article 2 , paragraph 4, “ “All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.”

If there was ever a time to invoke the 25th Amendment, today is the day!

Obama’s ISIS War: Profit for Military Contractors

“The military task has, in fact, been outsourced in Iraq,” analyst Steven Schooner, a professor at George Washington University Law School, told the Journal.

The Pentagon has converted Iraq with its violent sectarian rivalries into a lucrative business opportunity for a burgeoning mercenary and contractor industry that has blossomed in the wake of the September 11, 2001, terror attacks.

Obama’s ISIS war arrives at an opportune time for contractors. From 2008 to 2013, according to data provided to the Securities and Exchange Commission, the five largest U.S. defense contractors have experienced a 14 percent drop in employees. Lockheed Martin Corporation, the biggest defense contractor in the world, cut its workforce by 20 percent, International Business Times reported in August. The ISIS war now gearing up will undoubtedly restore lost revenue and provide for lost jobs.

American Imperialism and the Rise of Islamic Extremism in Syria and Iraq

While the ostensible target of the expanded war drive in the Middle East is now ISIS, behind the scenes the American ruling class is seeking to utilize the crisis surrounding ISIS to rejuvenate the “war on terror” and prepare action against the Assad government—to finish what it started. Assad has traditionally been a close ally of both Iran and Russia, the latter a target of an escalating war drive set off by the right-wing US and German backed coup in Ukraine.

ISIS is not, as the American government and mainstream media insist, an inexplicable “evil” force or a “cancer.” The success of ISIS and other Islamic extremist groups in Syria and Iraq is very much a product of American foreign policy in the Middle East.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an ongoing fraud, to attempt to sell the American people into endless war in the Middle East.

I, for one, am not buying.

And no matter WHAT the President says in his national address tomorrow, there will be an horrific discrepancy between what he says...and what finally happens on the ground in Iraq and Syria.

Is the anti-ISIS Campaign Attempting to Renew War Against Assad?

So, as an update, it's now become quite clear, and it will becoming more clear in the next few days, that the U.S. is going to try to turn this anti-ISIS campaign--a campaign that President Obama seems physically very uncomfortable with, for some very fundamental reasons--they're going to try to turn this anti-ISIS military campaign into a renewed war against the Syrian government. And he has already telegraphed that it will be a long war. Long wars mean very expensive wars. He says it will be a three-year campaign. In short, under the guise of taking the war against ISIS, this air war against ISIS, deep into Syria, the U.S. is going to attempt to become the air force for those so-called moderate Syrian rebels, forces that actually don't exist, but become an air force for them as the United States and its NATO allies did for the jihadists in Libya three years ago.

US Officials: New War on ISIS Will Take Years

Even though US officials still don’t really have an idea of how they will actually defeat ISIS, they do seem to at least agree that wiping the group out in both Iraq and Syria is going to take a very long time.

President Obama had qualified the war as not a question of “weeks” early on, though officials are now saying that it’s going to be more like years, and likely not just a couple of those.

The Pentagon planners are envisioning a “minimum” commitment of 36 months, which in keeping with their usual grossly optimistic estimates, could mean far, far longer.

‘Property of US Govt’: Islamic State jihadists armed with US military weapons

Islamic State fighters appear to be using captured US military issue arms and weapons supplied to moderate rebels in Syria by Saudi Arabia, according to a report published on Monday.

The study by the London-based small-arms research organisation Conflict Armament Research documented weapons seized by Kurdish forces from militants in Iraq and Syria over a 10-day period in July.

The report said the jihadists disposed of “significant quantities” of US-made small arms including M16 assault rifles and included photos showing the markings “Property of US Govt”.

US forms ten-nation coalition to escalate war in Iraq, Syria

US officials announced Friday that a "core coalition" of 10 countries, nine NATO members plus Australia, had agreed on a joint program of action against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the fundamentalist group whose forces now control much of eastern Syria and western and northern Iraq.

US Secretary of State John Kerry and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel met on the sidelines of the NATO summit in Wales with their counterparts from Australia, Britain, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Poland and Turkey.

According to Reuters, Kerry explained the program for fighting ISIS as follows: "We need to attack them in ways that prevent them from taking over territory, to bolster the Iraqi security forces and others in the region who are prepared to take them on, without committing troops of our own."

Kerry later reiterated the last point, saying, "Obviously, I think that's a red line for everybody here: no boots on the ground."

US ‘creating pretexts’ to attack Syria: Stephen Lendman

US President Barack Obama and some members of Congress are “creating pretexts” to target the government of President Bashar al-Assad, not the ISIL militant group, Stephen Lendman told Press TV on Saturday.

“There are endless pretexts that can be created,” Lendman stated. “It’s astonishing that the killing by any means of two individuals, Americans or anybody else, could be a pretext for going into war, but Obama will use whatever he can get,” Lendman added.

Obama strategy to beat Islamic State likely to draw U.S. into years of conflict

The U.S.-led international strategy to combat the Islamic State that President Barack Obama sketched out Friday is likely to require years of thorny diplomacy and deeper U.S. military involvement in conflicts that he’s struggled to avoid.

Obama’s remarks at the end of a NATO summit in Wales offered the administration’s most in-depth explanation to date of how it plans to fight the Islamic State, the transnational extremist group that has seized control of an area as large as Jordan straddling the dividing line between Syria and Iraq.

The nascent strategy calls for working with European and Arab allies to confront the group not only in Iraq, where the U.S. is conducting airstrikes to assist government-aligned fighters, but also in Syria, where the United States has failed to fulfill its years-long promise to help build a moderate rebel force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let me tell you precisely what this drive is to "sell" the American people on a new invasion of Iraq, and Syria, and possibly, Libya.

This is not about "protecting American freedom and democracy" (what paltry bits of it are left to the American people, after the passage of the Homeland Security Act, the Patriot Act, and the NDAA).

This is about making sure that all the oil developed and sold in the region is only sold to those entities the US wishes to sell to, and only in the US dollar.

Although the guy got a lot wrong, Carl Marx was absolutely correct, when he stated, "All wars are economic". War is about obtaining geopolitical objective byS other means than negotiations.

The innumerable deaths, the maimings and tearing apart of innocent families, and the destruction of homes, schools, and infrastructure, means nothing, and have utterly no moral repercussions, to those who believe that war is the only way to ensure the economic viability of the US dollar.

IF the US government had spent just a fraction of the money they have spent on the wars toward a sustainable renewable energy which can drive a tank, or power a plane, none of these catastophes like the war in Iraq; the war in Afghanistan; and the war against Libya, would never, ever have become necessary.

So what is the US government's answer to these absolutely, catastrophically failed wars?!?

MORE WAR.

So, again, the price in blood and money of these endeavors, is all about private profit for US and multinational corporations.

That is why countless of our finest military personnel will wind up dead, or maimed for life: private corporate profit, period, end of discussion.

And of course, bankers love war, because all sides come to them for the loans at interest,with which to support these wars.

We are headed toward absolute disaster, by continuing these failed national policies.

But of course, the people creating these wars do not care: they have their bunkers, and it won't be their kids, getting killed and maimed for life.

And even if the draft comes back in this country (and remember: Charlie Rangel, last year, introduced draft legislation which will be coming for BOTH your sons and your daughters), the elite always, somehow, find a way out for their kids.

House Leader: Congress Could Force War on ISIS to Escalate

Hawkishness toward ISIS has become fashionable these days among US politicians, and even the ever-escalating war against ISIS in Iraq, and talks of expanding it into Syria, aren’t nearly enough for many Congressmen’s tastes.

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R – CA), the House Majority Leader, pushed for a bigger war, and sooner, insisting in a new interview that “if the president won’t act, I think we have to take some action to move forward.”

Four different House committees are expected to hold hearings next week on ISIS, and Rep. McCarthy insisted that they needed to come up with a “concise foreign policy doctrine” for the war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Representative McCarthy: it is easy for those of you in the bowels of power to talk about going to war, when it is not your sons or daughters who will be killed, or maimed for life, in a military action which is only, and solely, about the protection of private, corporate profit.

But this time, sir, Americans will not be so willing to ride the war train, because they know that the ultimate objective is NOT about preserving our "freedoms" or "democracy", but about whose currency is the reserve currency of the world.

The last 3 military misadventures undertaken by the US military have concluded in catastrophic disaster; Iraq is a mess; Libya is about to be overtaken by a caliphate; and Afghanistan is a brutal and bloody war of attrition, 13 years on, in which the US and NATO forces are losing spectacularly.

It appears that the American political class are pathologically incapable of resolving their differences with countries around the world, other than overthrowing regimes, and replacing them with tin-pot dictators, which ultimately get overthrown by the people of those countries, so losing those countries yet again.

Obama Administration (Re-)Starts Marketing Campaign For Bombing Syria

It is September 2014 and we are past the summer and past Labor Day. Time to roll out the (old) new product:

NY Times: Syria May Have Hidden Chemical Arms, U.S. Says
ABC News: US: Terrorist Could Get Syria Chemical Weapons
HuffPo: US Warns Terrorist Could Get Hold Of Syria's Chemical Weapons

United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power says the United States is concerned that the most dangerous terrorist groups could get a hold of chemical weapons if Syria is hiding any stockpiles.

We know of course that Syria has disposed of all its chemical weapons and that these were destroyed under the eyes of the OPCW. But Iraq had also disposed of all its WMD and that it has none left was in fact one reason why it could be and was easily attacked.

So is Obama is doubling down (again) on Syria? Hoping that the mystical "Free Syrian Army" (Jihadis in disguise) heavily supports by the U.S. will fight the Islamic State and the Syrian government?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is NOT about our safety and security; a new war in the Middle East is NOT about protecting our "freedoms" (such paltry ones as we may have left, after the passage of the Homeland Security Act; the Patriot Act; and the NDAA).

This is solely about money; which country's currency is accepted to pay for the oil in the region, and who has access to the oil.

I do not want to see one more of our military get killed or maimed for life in the pursuit of private profit, and I would like to hope that no thinking person out there would want to see this happening either.

We have had the chance to observe just how "wonderfully" the American interventions in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya have gone; one would imagine that with that kind of a dreadful track record, the US government would be not inclined to try this again.

But here they are, desperate for yet another war, courtesy of a rapidly declining dollar and the wish to misdirect the American people from the true reasons for their economic misery.

Americans must join together, peacefully, and say, one massive NO to this rush for another war in the Middle East.

I am, frankly, very concerned about some kind of hideous false flag, courtesy, of this government on the anniversary of 9/11, to attempt to get the American people behind this coming war.

But I would strongly caution this government that the American people are hesitant in the extreme to believe anything this government tells them, because if a proven pattern of governmental lies, which has destroyed its credibility completely.

Cameron seems to be considering breaking International law, not once but twice.

First he is considering arming the Kurds in Iraq without the permission from the Iraqi Government. Perhaps he thinks there really is a Kurdistan.

ISIS, ISIL or IS is armed, funded and trained by the USA. Their objective in Iraq is to totally destabalise the nation and weakening it by splitting it into three, part Kurd, part Iraqi and the remainder an Islamic Caliphate.

Secondly he’s openly suggesting that the UK should bomb parts of Syria without the permission of the Syrian Government , not any different in the slightest with Blair’s illegal invasion of Iraq. Cameron declares the Assad Government to be illegitimate.

That being the case in his mind, means that not a country in the world is safe from invasion or attack, Cameron can simply declare the Government to be illegitimate.

Israel Raises Alarm Over Islamist Militants On Its Frontiers

Israel's frontier with Syria, where militants have kidnapped 45 U.N. peacekeepers, has become a magnet for Islamist activity and Israel itself is now a target, the defense minister and security analysts said on Tuesday.

The Nusra Front, an al-Qaeda-linked group fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, has established a major presence in the region, analysts said, and is poised to carry out attacks across the barren borderlands where Syria, Israel and Jordan converge.

Iran meanwhile is seeking to expand its influence in the region via its support for Assad and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, all of which are allied against the Sunni insurgency confronting Assad, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said.

The responsibility lies at the feet of Washington and its poodle States and the onus is on them to right the wrongs they willfully committed. You messed up, now... Pay for it!

ISIL completely fabricated enemy by US: Former CIA contractor

Former CIA contractor Steven Kelley says that the ISIL terrorist group is a completely fabricated enemy created and funded by the United States.

“This is a completely fabricated enemy,” he said in a phone interview with Press TV from Anaheim, California on Thursday.

“The funding is completely from the United States and its allies and for people to think that this enemy is something that needs to be attacked in Syria or Iraq is a farce because obviously this is something that we create it, we control and only now it has become inconvenient for us to attack this group as a legitimate enemy,” Kelley added.

He made the remarks as US President Barack Obama is under pressure to seek congressional approval before expanding Washington’s military air campaign against ISIL targets from Iraq into neighboring Syria.

Most Americans Now Support Airstrikes In Syria, Poll Shows

A majority of Americans think the United States should expand its military campaign against insurgents in Iraq into Syria as well, a new HuffPost/YouGov poll shows.

According to the poll, 60 percent of Americans now support airstrikes against insurgents in Syria, while 20 percent are opposed. That level of support approached the 64 percent of Americans in the survey who said they support the current airstrike campaign against Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Either these polls were polling the criminally insane, or doing "push polling", where the poll conductors know percisely where they will get a specific outcome to a specific question asked.

NO THINKING PERSON I KNOW SUPPORTS A MILITARY INTERVENTION IN SYRIA OR IRAQ.

But this is not about ISIS: it is about to whom the oil in the Middle East is sold, and in what currency. Such a military misadventure, as happened in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya (countries which are imploding, thanks to US military interventions) is all about the money. This is why our kids in our military are going to get killed or maimed for life: corporate profit.

I am watching the feed of one of the usual corporate shill presstitutes this morning, and we are being given the verbal/visual IV drip of "terror, terror, terror", and are told that the UK has raised its terror threat level to "severe".

Fear leads to illogic, hated of "the other", and completely zaps our ability to think rationally. It is almost as though the US and UK are working in lock step to create new false flags, perhaps in both the US and the UK.

Please understand: I am praying this doesn't happen. But if it does, please think: who benefits?!? It certainly will not be the British or American people who will benefit, who are already deep into harm's way economically, except for the 1 percenters. It will be engineered to jinn up more and more wars, to protect the supremacy of the dollar and line the pockets of the military industrial complex in both countries.

US Surveillance Flights A Step Toward Expanding War Into Syria

Officials confirmed the move toward surveillance flights over ISIS targets in Syria, leaving somewhat open the question of when the US is going to start launching airstrikes against targets inside Syria, expanding the Iraq War across the border.

Yet it’s not really a question of if, but when, as the surveillance flights are clearly the first step toward such attacks. The primary question is how to start launching such attacks without Syrian coordination, since officials want to avoid the appearance of cooperating with Syria.

The questions abound about expanding the war into Syria and are mostly unanswered, with Gen. Dempsey pushing the attacks, and the US already giving targeting intel to Syria’s government for the ISIS war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The real reason the US government is going into Syria, and back into Iraq, is that with ISIS controlling so much of the oil (at 2 to 3 million dollars of revenue per day), the oil is not being sold in US dollars, but other denominations.

This is about wrestling back economic control of the oil, and the currency in which is is sold.

Myth of ‘Limited’ US Airstrikes in Syria

The US is once again on the warpath against Syria after the beheading of US citizen James Foley was released on the internet a week ago.

His execution is being used to justify a mixed anti-terror and ‘humanitarian’ intervention in northeastern Syria. An information offensive has now been launched to peddle the myth of ‘limited’ strikes against Islamic State (IS) targets, but in all actuality, such a campaign is impossible to contain within the strict limits US authorities are promising.

Obama has already authorized surveillance flights over Syrian territory, showing that an attack appears to be imminent. A quick exercise in scenario forecasting illustrates how any US intervention in Syria will most certainly evolve from a ‘limited anti-terror operation’ to a massive military offensive, complete with proxy occupations and a full-scale outbreak of chaos throughout the entire country.

Gee, ya think?

If at first you don't succeed, lie, lie again!

A United Nations report has accused Syria of using chemical weapons eight times in April - and highlights mass atrocities by Islamic State militants.

The report by the independent Commission of Inquiry said it believed chlorine, dispatched in barrel bombs, was the agent used on multiple occasions.

It also highlighted mock crucifixions, public executions, amputations and the beheading of children by Islamic State militants in parts of Syria.

The accusations came amid reports that Syrian rebels had seized control of the Syrian crossing with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Dutch Intellectuals Apologize to Putin for Lies on MH17, Syria, Ukraine...

Dear Mr. President Putin,

Please accept our apologies on behalf of a great many people here in the Netherlands for our Government and our Media. The facts concerning MH17 are twisted to defame you and your country.

We are powerless onlookers, as we witness how the Western Nations, led by the United States, accuse Russia of crimes they commit themselves more than anybody else. We reject the double standards that are used for Russia and the West. In our societies, sufficient evidence is required for a conviction. The way you and your Nation are convicted for 'crimes' without evidence, is ruthless and despicable.

You have saved us from a conflict in Syria that could have escalated into a World War. The mass killing of innocent Syrian civilians through gassing by ‘Al-­?Qaeda’ terrorists, trained and armed by the US and paid for by Saudi Arabia, was blamed on Assad. In doing so, the West hoped public opinion would turn against Assad, paving the way for an attack on Syria.

US policies can result in next World War: American journalist

Washington’s policies can “explode the entire Middle East” and they can “result in the next World War,” an American political commentator says.

In an interview with Press TV on Monday, James Morris, editor of America-hijacked.com, said US military interventions in other countries, including the 2003 invasion of Iraq, have created brutal terrorist groups like ISIL.

ISIL “is the result of the failed US invasion of Iraq,” Morris said.

Syria ready to cooperate with U.S. and others to stop Islamic State

The UN on Monday accused jihadists in Iraq of “ethnic and religious cleansing” as the most senior U.S. military officer warned they will soon threaten America and Europe.

As condemnation of the Islamic State (IS) jihadist group mounted, Syria — a pariah over its bloody crackdown on opponents of President Bashar al-Assad’s rule — said it was ready to work with the global community against “terrorism.”

UN human rights chief Navi Pillay said abuses by IS and affiliated groups in Iraq against non-Arab ethnic groups and non-Sunni Muslims involved targeted killings, forced conversions, abductions, trafficking, and destruction of holy and cultural sites.

“They are systematically targeting men, women and children based on their ethnic, religious or sectarian affiliation and are ruthlessly carrying out widespread ethnic and religious cleansing in the areas under their control,” Pillay said.

“Such persecution would amount to crimes against humanity,” she added, in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My goodness, what a difference a year makes!

Was it not just a year ago that John Kerry and President Obama were on the verge of ordering air strikes against Syria for allegedly hitting its own population with poison gas?!?

And the two people who talked them out of that foolishness were none other than Russia's Vlad Putin and Sergei Lavrov, now demonized today, because they protested the illegal replacement of the duly elected Ukrainian government in a US/EU/UCB-backed putsch.

In the Middle East there is a saying: the enemy of my enemy is my friend. And this is nowhere proven more true than the US's sudden turnabout regarding Syria and the IS.

She said the United Nations had 'information' that the photojournalist was beheaded last year.

Assad Policies Aided Rise of Islamic State Militant Group

The Islamic State, which metastasized from a group of militants seeking to overthrow the Syrian government into a marauding army gobbling up chunks of the Middle East, gained momentum early on from a calculated decision by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to go easy on it, according to people close to the regime.

Earlier in the three-year-old Syrian uprising, Mr. Assad decided to mostly avoid fighting the Islamic State to enable it to cannibalize the more secular rebel group supported by the West, the Free Syrian Army,...

This is a real reach. The spin is that Assad is somehow to blame for ISIS, even though they admit that ISIS opposed Assad.

NY Times BEX alert - Blamed for ISIS’ Rise in Syria, Assad Is Pushed to Escalate Fight

The extremist militants of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria have attacked Syrian troops with new ferocity in recent weeks, taking over three northeastern military bases, beheading scores of soldiers and seizing new territory.

The jihadist offensive has prompted some panicked supporters of the Syrian government to sharply criticize the leadership, questioning why it appeared to allow ISIS to build a base in the northern Syria province of Raqqa for the last year, while claiming the Syrian Army was fighting terrorism. As far back as June, as ISIS fighters swept back into Syria with American weapons looted in Iraq, Elia Samaan, a government adviser, exclaimed, “Where is our air force?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Man, the propagandists don't even care if what they say makes any sense at all! Assad had nothing to do with the rise of ISIS. ISIS was (like Al Qaeda) a creation of the US, funded by the US and trained by the US in Jordan.

They are pushing way too hard on this.

US Begins Selling "Syria Intervention" Using ISIS Pretext

In a previous report titled, "Growing Mayhem - US Operating on Both Sides of Syrian-Iraqi Border," it was reported that (emphasis added):

Clearly, the answer, left for readers to arrive at on their own, is that these "successful" US airstrikes in Iraq must be carried over into Syria - where mission creep can do the rest, finally dislodging the Syrian government from power after an ongoing proxy war has failed to do so since 2011. After arming and aiding the Kurds in fighting ISIS in Iraq, the US will attempt to make a similar argument regarding the arming of terrorists in Syria and providing them direct US air support to defeat ISIS - and of course - Damascus.

Joshua Katz, an Army veteran and former CIA operations officer who served as Senior Policy Advisor to the Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said it is “very, very, true” that ISIS may have crossed the southern border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obviously this will not go over very well with the pro-illegal immigration agenda, but what is being done here is the creation of a plausible means for the terrorists (nudge nudge wink wink) to have brought the bomb into the US.

We The People remember how you lied about Assad gassing his own people to trick us into war, which didn't work because we still remember how you lied about Saddam's nuclear weapons and stolen incubators to trick us into war with Iraq, and we remember how you lied about torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin to trick us into war with Vietnam, and how you lied to us about the Lusitania not carrying weapons to trick us into WW1, and how you lied about a Spanish mine in Havana harbor sinking the USS Maine to trick us into war with Spain ... need I go on?

So you will forgive us if we sit this next war for conquest and enrichment out and keep our children safe at home.

FLASHBACK - Fighting Al Qaeda by Supporting Al Qaeda in Syria: The Obama Administration is a “State Sponsor of Terrorism”

A major transition in US counter-terrorism doctrine is unfolding.

While Barack Obama, following in the footsteps of George W. Bush, remains firmly committed to waging a “Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT), his administration is now openly supporting selected rebel units in Syria which are part of the Al Qaeda network.

Known and documented, Al Qaeda is a creation of the CIA, which has covertly supported the “Islamic Terror Network” since the heyday of the Soviet Afghan war.

While Al Qaeda is a US sponsored “intelligence asset”, a “New Normal” has been established.

An Al Qaeda affiliated organization, namely Syria’s Al Nusrah, is being supported “overtly” by the US President, rather than “covertly” by the CIA.

Except that this is not a civil war but one in an endless series of covert US overthrows, such as the one started in Kiev last January that is still thrashing about. Since the end of WW2, the US Government has tried to covertly overthrow the governments of some 50 countries succeeding about half the time. Successes include Iran in 1953 and Chile in 1973. Failures include Iran in 2009 and arguably, Ukraine in 2014.

“I think of an American city in flames because of the terrorists’ ability to operate in Syria and Iraq,” Graham told Fox News host Chris Wallace. “Mr. President, you have never once spoke directly to the America people about the threat we face from being attacked from Syria, now Iraq.

n a televised address late Thursday night President Obama announced that he has authorized new U.S. military airstrikes in Iraq.

The president said the bombings may be necessary to stop the advance of a Sunni militant group, called the Islamic State (previously the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS), if they approach the recently increased U.S. forces stationed at a fortified consulate and a military base in the northern city of Erbil.

"To stop the advance on Erbil," Obama stated, "I’ve directed our military to take targeted strikes against ISIL terrorist convoys should they move toward the city. We intend to stay vigilant, and take action if these terrorist forces threaten our personnel or facilities anywhere in Iraq, including our consulate in Erbil and our embassy in Baghdad."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is another case of "blowback" from a poorly planned foreign policy. The US funded and trained ISIS to send against Syria's Assad. Then ISIS decided they had had enough of fighting the US' war in Syria and took their US taxpayer paid-for weapons and headed into Iraq, which was looking more attractive because of growing resentment by the people of Iraq against their US puppet regime. The Iraq security forces, also funded and trained by the US, dropped their US taxpayer paid-for weapons and ran, allowing ISIS to add to their arsenal of US taxpayer paid-for weapons and march towards Baghdad. So n ow Obama had ordered US warplanes (paid for again by the US taxpayers) to start dropping bombs (paid for again by the US taxpayers) onto ISIS to destroy their weapons (paid for again by the US taxpayers), along with a token number of food packages (paid for again by the US taxpayers) so Obama can pretend this is a humanitarian mission rather than invasion number three of Iraq.

As we head deeper into WW3, no matter who is fighting who, somehow the US taxpayer gets soaked for the bill!

FLASHBACK JANUARY - Syrian torture claims- Without the torture- Unlike Abu Ghraib- Odd?

Experts agree that the chemical weapons attack in the Syrian capital of Damascus could not have happened the way the US government contends

The attack could not have happened the way the US government contends. If it happened at all?

In such a timely fashion..... what appears today? ‘Evidence’ put together by the Qatar monarchy to manage your reality. If you will just believe unflinchingly. And just as the US showed it’s deceit and dishonesty. Oh but never mind there is torture ya know?

Here’s the story. Syrian regime accused of torture

The report was commissioned by the Gulf state of Qatar, which backs the Syrian rebels.

The report was commissioned by Qatar, a backer of the murderous mercs.
That's red flag number 1!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yesterday we cast doubt on the authenticity of this Syrian defector code-named "Caesar", being used to mount yet another massive push for the invasion of Syria. As it turns out, this "Caesar" has been floating around the propaganda machine for six months now.

As a side note, when Syria fights back against a foreign-supported mercenary army it is denounced as a war crime justifying invasion by the US, but when Israel bombs a captive population three times in six years, the US calls it "self defense" and sends Israel more weapons!

BEX ALERT - Syrian Defector: Assad Poised to Torture and Murder 150,000 More

Congress was shocked Thursday when a Syrian defector recounted how he documented Assad’s killing of over 11,000 innocents. But that’s only the tip of the iceberg, according to ‘Caesar.’

The regime of Syrian President Bashar al Assad is holding 150,000 civilians in custody, all of whom are at risk of being tortured or killed by the state, the Syrian defector known as “Caesar” told Congress Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More pro-war propaganda. I remember the "defectors" the US wagged at us to claim Saddam had nuclear weapons and mobile biological warfare labs (which turned out to be artillery balloon inflators).

I think the boys on Wall Street and DC realize that if they don't get the new world war really cranked up in the next few weeks, they are not going to get it at all. And that means when the US economy implodes, there will be no patsy to blame it on and the American people will take the true authors of all this misery, the private central bankers, and have them tarred, feathered, hanged, drawn, quartered, burned and the ashes pissed on by a rabid wombat!

UN threatens sanctions on anyone trading oil with ISIS terrorists

The UN Security Council has voiced “grave concern” over reports of oil trading with ISIS militant groups in Iraq and Syria. ISIS has seized control of oilfields in the area and is reportedly using the revenues to finance its nascent Islamic State.

Russia submitted a draft statement to the Security Council on Monday night that would ban crude oil sales by terrorist organizations in Syria and Iraq, and potentially sanction anyone that does business with them. The measure “strongly condemns any engagement in direct or indirect trade of oil from Syria involving terrorist groups, and reiterates that such engagement constitutes financial support for entities designated by the Security Council 1267/1989 Committee as terrorist."

The statement also calls on all member states to take “necessary measures” to stop “nationals, entities and individuals” from engaging in transactions linked to non-state actors in the oil industry in Syria.

Group from Syria en route to commit terror in West: Norway intelligence

The head analyst of Norway’s intelligence agency says a group of people is en route from Syria “to carry out an act of terror in the West,” adding that Norway has been “concretely named” as the target.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

FALSE FLAG ALERT!
As usual, they are sure terrorists are on the way, although they don't know who they are, where they are doing, what they are going to do, or exactly where they will show up. And if you believe THAT one I have some of Saddam's nuclear weapons to sell you!

Why would Assad do such a thing? What does it get him that he needs or wants? Nothing.

But a "terror attack" (nudge nudge wink wink) gives the US an excuse to send troops into Syria and finish the three year effort to oust Assad.

Syrian capital witnesses "fiercest fighting in months"

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported Tuesday that regime forces launched a massive aerial offensive on the neighborhood of Jobar, leaving at least 18 people wounded.

"Starting dawn Tuesday, Jobar saw the fiercest fighting in months, coupled with intense aerial bombardment," said Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman.

Regime forces launched at least nine strikes on Jobar, while troops on the ground continued fighting. Regime forces also allegedly "deployed tanks..and shelled rebel areas of Jobar," according to the Observatory.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he has stopped talking to US President Barack Obama on the phone, amid growing strains between Ankara and Washington over Syria and the Gaza conflict.

Turkey, a fierce opponent of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and an open supporter of armed rebel fighters, felt betrayed when the United States backed away from military action against Damascus in September.

“The Israeli Dream”: The Criminal Roadmap Towards “Greater Israel”?

The concept of a “Greater Israel” according to the founding father of Zionism Theodore Herzl, is a Jewish State stretching “’From the Brook of Egypt to the Euphrates.’

Rabbi Fischmann, of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, stated to the UN Special Committee on 9th July 1947 that:

The Promised Land extends from the River of Egypt up to the Euphrates, it includes parts of Syria and Lebanon’”, wrote Michel Chossudovsky. (1)

Thus “from the Nile to the Euphrates.” Herzl’s detailed thesis was written in 1904.

Kurds enter Syria from Turkey to fight ‘Islamic State’ jihadists

Hundreds of Kurdish fighters have entered northern Syria to help battle jihadists besieging the Kurdish city of Ain al-Arab, a monitor said Tuesday.

“At least 800 Kurdish fighters crossed the Turkish-Syrian border to help their comrades in Ain al-Arab (Kobane in Kurdish), which is under total siege by Islamic State jihadists,” Syrian Observatory for Human Rights director Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP.

A Kurdish Syrian activist said the flow of fighters came as the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), blacklisted in Turkey as a terrorist organisation, gave orders for Kurdish fighters to move to protect Kobane.

“Fighters started going into Kobane from Turkey some four or five days ago,” said Havidar, who goes by only one name.

“But the latest entry, last night, came after orders from the higher leadership of the PKK. Last night, there were celebrations in Kobane — fighters were firing into the air as they arrived in the town,” he told AFP.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Only time will tell if the Peshmerga fighters will win against the Islamic rebels; right now, I would not bet against it.

Islamic State jihadists ‘expel rivals’ from Syria’s Deir Ezzor

The jihadist Islamic State group took control of the rebel-held half of the eastern Syrian city of Deir Ezzor on Monday, buoyed by advances in neighbouring Iraq, a monitoring goup said.

Rival rebel groups fighting forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad either gave in and joined the IS or fled from the strategic Euphrates valley city, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Assad’s forces remain in control of the other half of the city, a provincial capital and pre-war hub of the country’s oil industry.

According to the Britain-based Observatory, which relies on a network of activists and medics on the ground, IS jihadists are now in control of “95 to 98 percent of Deir Ezzor province”.

Only the regime-controlled half of Deir Ezzor city, a handful of villages and the military airport remain out of IS control.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Excuse me, but where, or where, please, are those alleged "moderate rebels" the US government has been funding and training to overthrow Al-Assad?!?

Have they simply taken up the jihadists' calls for a caliphate, and are now aligned with them?!?

I think, at this point in the game, American taxpayers deserve a straight answer on this, after the billions spent on this.

NBC BEX - Hamas Firing China-Designed, Syria-Made M-302 Rockets: Israel

Smuggled Syrian-made rockets based on a Chinese design have boosted Hamas' 10,000-strong arsenal which is dominated by crude homemade devices, officials and experts say.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If this were true (and not for one second am I buying this USDA Choice bovine excrement) then it means that Israel's starvation blockade of Gaza is totally ineffective. Israel has justified blocking food, medicine, schools supplies, even students' musical instruments into Gaza, all under the excuse that they are preventing HAMAS from obtaining military weapons.

Well, this sudden Israeli claim that HAMAS has thousands of rockets smuggled in proves the blockade simply does not work, and the only reason Israel continues the blockade is to increase the suffering of the Palestinians!

1,000-Strong Syrian Rebel Brigade Defects to ISIS

The Syrian Dawud Brigade, a 1,000-strong group of fighters formerly allied to the Islamic Front umbrella, has left its position in the Idlib Province and gone to Raqqa to join ISIS.

The brigade brought with it 100 vehicles, including 10 tanks seized from the Syrian Army during various battles, and is the largest defection so far to ISIS from any rival rebel faction.

The Islamic Front’s “Sham Army” wing downplayed the reports of defection, and insisted they had expelled Dawud, believing them to be a “fifth column” for ISIS.

That seems unlikely with the faction bringing such a large amount of vehicles and weapons with them, but does reflect growing acrimony between ISIS and the Islamic Front, which has claimed to have executed ISIS fighters in recent days.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And while all this plays out, Al-Assad is still in power in Damascus.

Not QUITE the scenario the US government had envisioned, with all of its overt and covert interventions here, I would be willing to bet.

Macmillan backed Syria assassination plot

Nearly 50 years before the war in Iraq, Britain and America sought a secretive "regime change" in another Arab country they accused of spreading terror and threatening the west's oil supplies, by planning the invasion of Syria and the assassination of leading figures.

Newly discovered documents show how in 1957 Harold Macmillan and President Dwight Eisenhower approved a CIA-MI6 plan to stage fake border incidents as an excuse for an invasion by Syria's pro-western neighbours, and then to "eliminate" the most influential triumvirate in Damascus.

The plans, frighteningly frank in their discussion, were discovered in the private papers of Duncan Sandys, Mr Macmillan's defence secretary, by Matthew Jones, a reader in international history at Royal Holloway, University of London.

Arab Spring, Jihad Summer

Al-Baghdadi, born Ibrahim al-Badri in Samarra, is an average Sunni Iraqi cleric with a degree in pedagogy from the University of Baghdad. His alter ago was born after Shock and Awe in 2003, and soon metamorphosed into a de facto serial killer - blowing up Shi'ite kids at ice-cream shops or scores of women at Shi'ite weddings.

ISIL's track record in Syria includes banning every flag apart from its own; the destruction of any "polytheist" temple or sanctuary (except if it is Sunni); and strict imposition of Islamically correct women wear. Most of all, it is a track record of terror. This is not an army, rather a well-trained militia of professional mujahid, European passport holders included, with battlefield experience in Iraq, Afghanistan and, to a lesser degree, Chechnya. Heavy weaponizing is petrodollar-financed - the usual, wealthy "Gulf donors", which does not exclude official connections.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What frustrates me so intensely here is that it is US governmental policies which have created this mess in the first place, by waging an immoral and illegal war against Iraq for no damned good reason whatsoever, with the Bush administration lying through their teeth about their allegation that Hussein had "weapons of mass destruction."

And because of that, Americans now fully expect every member of the US government to lie to the American people, and the world, with impunity; the difference now, is that no Americans believe anything that the government tells them whatsoever.

Credibility on the part of the US government, 2014: epic fail.

The Superpower and the Caliphate

The jihadist die is cast, a point of no return for the U.S. strategy of projecting imperial power in the region through armed Islamic fundamentalist surrogates. The international jihadist network, which did not exist before the CIA, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan created it to undermine the leftist secular government of Afghanistan in mid-1979, has become a movement that can no longer be controlled. The physical contours of the ISIS caliphate, the movement’s dynamic new focal point, may prove indefensible, especially if the Americans decide they cannot avoid an all-out assault on their former asset. But, whatever the U.S. military response, the game plan that was hatched in 2011 for Libya, Syria, Iraq – for the whole region – is kaput, based as it is on the reliable deployment of jihadists as surrogates for NATO and Arab royals. Worse, the Arab oil potentates understand full well that their own regimes are now in grave danger from the indigenous monstrosity they have created.

As Shia Shrines Are Targeted and Tikrit Is Strangled, the Fiercest of Wars Lies Ahead

The meltdown of American and British policy in Iraq and Syria attracts surprisingly little criticism at home. Their aim for the past three years has been get rid of Bashar al-Assad as ruler of Syria and stabilise Iraq under the leadership of Nouri al-Maliki. The exact reverse has happened, with Mr Assad in power and likely to remain so, while Iraq is in turmoil with the government’s authority extending only a few miles north and west of Baghdad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That absolutely nobody saw this coming demonstrates, very painfully clearly, that the pathological inability to think an idea through to its logical conclusion has been a requirement for hiring by the US government in the past administration, as well as the present one.

The invasion and occupation of Iraq, along with the training of militants to attack Syria, have absolutely not made Americans, or American interests, globally, more safe; these actions have done precisely the polar opposite.

ISIS Captures Syrian Towns, Key Oil Field

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant marched across eastern Syria near the border with Iraq on Thursday, seizing towns, villages and the country's largest oil field as rival rebel factions gave up the fight, activists said.

The extremist group -- which controls large parts of northern Syria and captured vast swaths of northern and western Iraq last month -- is now in almost full control of a corridor stretching from the Syrian border town of Boukamal to the government-controlled provincial capital of Deir el-Zour to the northwest.

Led by an ambitious Iraqi militant known as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant this week unilaterally declared the establishment of an Islamic state, or caliphate, in the lands it has seized in Syria and Iraq. It proclaimed al-Baghdadi the head of its new self-styled state and demanded that all Muslims pledge allegiance to him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, let me get this straight: with all the surveillance the NSA does, around the world, they bloody couldn't see this coming?!?

IF they did not see this coming, then every bit of surveillance done by the NSA is NOT about allegedly "keeping Americans safe"; it is about keeping Americans cowed and terrified.

How to Understand the ISIS Threat

I suspect that a paucity of reliable intelligence is being shoehorned into an acceptable narrative for policymakers to regurgitate. The promotion of the alleged threat includes a conflation of several quite separate issues. It is based on the indisputable fact that a number of young Muslims ostensibly citizens of European countries and the United States, some of whom are indigenous converts to Islam, have gone to perform jihad in the Middle East and South Asia. As the punditry would have it, they must be planning to return home some day and raise hell, a line of reasoning that has spawned several Congressional hearings hosted by the Rep. Peter King of New York on the so-called home-grown terrorism threat.

Israel claims Assad’s forces behind cross-border attack that killed teen

Israel’s Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Tuesday that military forces loyal to the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad were behind a cross-border attack that killed an Israeli teenager.

“We received all the analyses and intelligence: it was clear that it was Syrian authorities,” Lieberman told public radio.

“Assad’s forces fired at the Israeli civilian, on the vehicles that had stopped by the border, and they need to pay the price,” he added.

The 13-year-old Arab Israeli, the son of a defence ministry contractor, was killed on the Golan Heights on Sunday when a missile hit the car he was in with his father.

The army said it was a deliberate attack against Israel, but was initially uncertain as to whether regime or opposition forces were behind it.

Webmaster's Commentary:

And how difficult would it be to get one of the hired mercenaries to fire a rocket in order to target the car in which the kid got killed?

Kurds say they warned MI6, CIA about ISIL

Five months ago, a Kurdish intelligence "asset" walked into a base and said he had information to hand over.

The capture by jihadists the month before of two Sunni cities in western Iraq was just the beginning, he said. There would soon be a major onslaught on Sunni territories.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a renegade offshoot of al-Qaida, was about to take its well known co-operation with leftovers of the regime of Saddam Hussein, and his former deputy Izzat al-Douri, to a new level.

His handlers knew their source had always proved reliable, officials said, so they listened carefully as he said a formal alliance was about to be signed that would lead to the takeover of Mosul, Iraq's second largest city.

BACK TO BAGHDAD!

One would think the neoconservatives who engineered the Iraq War – the worst disaster for the United States since Vietnam – would never emerge from hiding.

Not so. With dazzling chutzpah, former Vice President Dick Cheney, the real power in the Bush administration, just claimed President Barack Obama was responsible for the growing mess in Iraq.

Obama is a wimp allowing America’s foes to run rampant across the Mideast and Eastern Europe, growled Cheney. He wants US troops to reoccupy Iraq, and maybe Syria. Cheney’s blustering was applauded by another over-the-hill dotard, Republican party leader Sen. John McCain.

Out from the Washington woodwork crept a swarm of neoconservatives. They joined Cheney in blasting Obama over Iraq and calling for more wars against the Muslim world.

ISIS, an al Qaeda offshoot, has been collaborating with the Syrian rebels whom the Obama administration has been arming in their efforts to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Paul explained.

Syria’s Press Conference the United Nations Doesn’t Want You To See

Yesterday at 11am, the Syrian Mission to the United Nations convened a press conference featuring people from the US who observed the recent elections.

Five minutes into the opening comments of Syrian Ambassador Bashar Al-Jaafari, the UN webcast cut off. The thousands of journalists, political analysts, and others who view UN webcasts each day from all over the world were denied the ability to watch the press conference, and hear what was said.

This is not the first time this has happened when Bashar Jaafari is speaking. This occurred on June 7th earlier this year, and on numerous occasions throughout 2013. Reporters at Inner City Press reported that this is not accidental, but was ordered by Michele DuBach, Acting Deputy Director-News & Media Operations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In a nutshell, international observers found nothing at all suspicious in the recent Syrian Presidential elections. Assad won with a huge voter turnout. This demolishes the US justification for supporting the hired mercenaries who have been trying to covertly overthrow Assad for three years now on the claim that the Syrian people suffer under a cruel tyrant.

Why ISIS gains in Iraq are reshaping Syrian regime's war strategy

Syria's regime has relied on Shiite fighters to claw back territory from rebels. A draw down of Iraqi Shiites to defend the homeland from ISIS militants puts more strain on Hezbollah.

Iraq crisis: Militants 'seize Tikrit' after taking Mosul

Islamist insurgents in Iraq have seized the city of Tikrit, their second major gain after capturing Mosul on Tuesday, security officials say.

Tikrit, the hometown of former leader Saddam Hussein, lies just 150km (95 miles) north of the capital Baghdad.

Iraqi PM Nouri Maliki has vowed to fight back against the jihadists and punish those in the security forces who have deserted.

The insurgents are from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS).

ISIS, which is also known as ISIL, is an offshoot of al-Qaeda.

It controls considerable territory in eastern Syria and western and central Iraq, in a campaign to set up a Sunni militant enclave straddling the border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, I think we can reasonably come to the conclusion that the invasion and occupation of Iraq, coupled with the completely unsuccessful attempt at regime change in Syria, have resulted in a complete, epic, flustercluck for the United States government.

The lack of critical thinking, and zero knowledge of world history manifested by this Administration, has led to some really lousy decision making coming out of DC, and that is a real problem, both for Americans and for the world.

Syrian government begins releasing prisoners

Assad’s regime has begun releasing prisoners from government jails under the general amnesty that was announced Monday, AFP reports.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are two important aspects to this story. For one, Syria has a President who actually keeps his promises! That is historic! We could use one of those ourselves! I don't think the USA has had a President who actually kept his promises since Andrew Jackson kept his promise to shut down the Second Bank of the United States.

The other aspect is that a general release of prisoners is a clear signal that the war in Syria is over ... and the US proxies lost.

Susan Rice’s Latest Whopper: “Our Leadership Is Unmatched”…

Defending President Barack Obama’s foreign policy as one of global leadership – rather than the passive stance his critics portray – National Security Adviser Susan Rice said Friday the United States was taking important steps in Syria by offering both “lethal and non-lethal” aid to the moderate opposition fighting a bloody civil war.

Syrian President Assad Grants General Amnesty

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad issued Monday Legislative Decree no. 22 for 2014 granting a general amnesty for crimes committed before June 9, 2014.

State television cited Justice Minister Najem al-Ahmad as saying the decree was issued in the context of “social forgiveness, national cohesion calls for coexistence, as the army secures several military victories.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Assad has won re-election, has recaptured most of Syria from the hired mercenaries, and now offers a general amnesty. The US has lost all justification for further involvement in Syria ... which means the invasion is ON!

Is Washington Planning a Terrorist Operation against Syria in the Wake of the Elections?

There are indications that Washington and its allies are planning a new wave of destabilization involving the influx of weapons and death squads to be carried out in the wake of the June 3 Elections. This “civil war destabilization scenario” is to be supported by a new package of US military aid announced by President Obama on May 28th, less than a week before the June 3 elections.

In mid May, two weeks before the elections, Secretary of State John Kerry confirmed that the US and its allies “would increase all aspects of support for the mainstream Syrian opposition fighting to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad”.

Confirmed by John Kerry, these efforts consist in accelerating the flow of weapons to opposition fighters ahead of the elections:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bashar Al-Assad won this election with almost 88% of the Syrian vote, but never mind what the Syrian people want: the US (and Israel) want regime change in Syria as a prelude to an attack against Iran, after the P5+1 talks with Iran are engineered to fail before the July 20th deadline here.

It has become an uncomfortable reality of being an American citizen that in the 21st century, those values for which I used to think this country stood, no longer exist.

There is no honor; there is no truth; there is no peace; there is no freedom; and their is no honoring of human rights in this country, or outside of it, when there are specific geopolitical outcomes which are desired by the rulership of this country.

It is rarely ever their kids who are going to be maimed for life, or killed outright, in what are essentially wars ultimately for private profit. That is why these immoral and illegal wars are fought; for private profit.

Al-Qaida leader dressed in 'drag' arrested by Syrian government

Syria's government troops on Tuesday arrested the commander of a ruthless and deadly al-Qaida group when he attempted to escape looking like a Muslim drag queen, according to Middle East news outlets. An army unit loyal to President Bashar al-Assad captured the Ahrar Al-Sham leader after the terrorist group was defeated in an intense battle, according to Fars News Agency.

Norweigan general leads UN team into Syria to talk about UN mission to verify cease-fire

A team led by a Norwegian major general arrived Thursday in Damascus to negotiate the possible deployment of U.N. monitors for any cease-fire between Syrian troops and rebel forces.

Ahmad Fawzi, a spokesman for peace envoy Kofi Annan, reported the arrival and said the U.N. is already asking members to contribute 200 to 250 soldiers to monitor a cease-fire that officials hope would start April 10.

Annan has asked the Norwegian major-general, Robert Mood, to begin discussing with the Syrian authorities “the eventual deployment of this U.N. supervision and monitoring mission,” Fawzi said.

Such a contingent would first have to be authorized by the 15-nation Security Council.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I frankly wouldn't hold my breath that magically, just because of a date on a calendar, that the "rebel forces" (read: hired mercs) will lay down their weapons, and sing "Kumbyah", along with Syrian forces.

My suspicion is that Annan pushed al-Assad for this deadline for cessation of hostilities because such a deadline is not achievable.

And what happens, then, on the 11th of April, if there has been no substantive cease-fire? And what world player will be willing, if not eager, to act, even without a UN mandate?

Were I a betting woman, I would not bet against some kind of "shadow NATO engagement" to bring about regime change, but the kind of involvement which couldn't quite be pinned directly on NATO by a very angered China and Russia, which would, reasonably, see such an action as an "end-run" against the UN, and done without any UN mandate whatever.

Reporter: Al Jazeera told me to ignore Syria intervention


Al Jazeera has supplied Syrian rebels with satellite communication tools to ensure telephone and Internet connection, claims Ali Hashim, a former correspondent of the Qatar-funded channel. The equipment was smuggled from Lebanon, he told RT.

In Defense of Helen Thomas: What’s Wrong With History?

Helen Thomas’s recent request to purchase a table at the upcoming White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) annual dinner has been rejected.

In a comment on that story I said, “It’s hard to imagine anything more wrong than this.”

I base my opinion on the fact that the 91-year-old Thomas, a former WHCA president, is unique among American journalists, having covered 10 different presidential administrations in a career stretching back to Dwight Eisenhower.

It is because of Thomas as much as anyone else that women were first included at the WHCA dinner since, as the WHCA’s website mentions:

Syria: America Steps onto the Slippery Slope

As I've said before, the Syrian situation is such a mess that I don't claim to have a solution. And I guess that limits how indignant I can get about solutions that other people are pushing, including those that my government is pursuing. But could we at least be honest about we're doing? The U.S., by giving the rebels this communications equipment, is now officially helping Syrians kill other Syrians. That's a big step.

There was one other big development at the "Friends of Syria" conference that the Times story was about: Some Arab states are creating a $100 million fund to pay rebel soldiers. Put these two developments together and this looks a lot like the first few steps toward a thoroughgoing intervention by a coalition involving the U.S., Arab states, and others.

US: UN Must Act Against Syria After April 10 Deadline

A new UN Security Council resolution reiterating their approval of the Kofi Annan ceasefire deal in Syria and urging both sides to stop fighting by April 10 has been stalled on specific wording, with the US seemingly trying to work the resolution into some sort of mandate.

US Ambassador Susan Rice insisted that the United Nations has to act “urgently and seriously” against Syria once the April 10 deadline the Annan government agreed upon passes, assuming there is no halt to operations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to US Ambassador Susan Rice to the UN: How do you get your Russian and Chinese counterparts on board with the wording of such a resolution?

And if you cannot get them on board with this UN Syrian resolution, Madam Ambassador, what then?!?!?Are we to expect NATO to attack and invade on the 11th?!?

And who the heck gave the US government the moral authority to speak for the world on this?!?

And Madam Ambassador, the short answer is, nobody!!

“Friends of Syria”—the antechamber of a wider Mideast war

The so-called “Friends of Syria” conference convened in Istanbul last Sunday marks a major escalation in fomenting civil war and preparing for direct imperialist intervention. What is envisioned and is being actively prepared is a bloodletting that will eclipse the death toll thus far in the Syrian conflict and a war that has the potential of triggering a global conflict threatening millions.

Led by Washington and its principal NATO allies—Britain, France and Germany—together with Saudi Arabia and the rest of the reactionary Persian Gulf oil monarchies and Turkey, the conference produced two substantive developments.
